Banner Co News


Good Morning Banner County! Here we are almost at the end of summer and it just does not seem possible to me. Where did the time go? I know that I did not have that much fun. I do hope we have an Indian Summer’ because I sure could use some decent weather in order to get all that needs to be taken care of finished before winter. The almanac is saying that this winter is not to be a mild one.

Monday was a great day as those old yellow school buses were seen traveling the roads and depositing children at the Banner County School. I do not know who was the happiest, the kids or the parents.

We have two new teachers and a new principal, Mr. Jones. The teachers are Miss Tallmage, who will be in kindergarten, and Miss Cooper, who will be in second grade. Welcome to you all.

I do not have a count on enrollment as of this time.

The school hosted an open house Wednesday evening. I hope everyone was notified and able to attend. The other school house in Harrisburg will begin classes on Monday, Aug. 31.

Fourth grade students from all over the valley will start attending Flowerfield at the Banner County Museum. This is a wonderful experience with excellent teachers and some fun too. The meeting for volunteers and substitutes for Flowerfield will be held on Monday, Aug. 24, at the museum at 10 a.m. Schools throughout the area will be enjoying their day through Nov. 2.

Happy Happy Birthday to Lynette Stoddard, Kelly Cross, Trinity Johnson, Keisey Bohnsack, David Whelchel, Art Olsen, Linda Bright, Megan Mosby, Zachary Ansley, Chance Whelchel, Norma Boston, Gladys Wyatt, Kassie Loutzenhiser, Dustin Lind and Ryan Mason.

Celebrating an anniversary are Mr. and Mrs’ Larry Malm, Mr. and Mrs. Steve Adrian, and Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Mason.

The Van Pelt Family Reunion will be held on Sept. 13 at the Banner County Museum at noon. For more information please call Tami Van Pelt at 307-421-3211 or Kim Barnwell at 308-672-2527.

Last week the Kimball/Banner County Fair commenced with a bang as they held an Iron Man Chore Time Relay. Tossing salt blocks, siphoning water from a tank into a bucket, climbing a stack of bales, hauling buckets of water over said bales, sliding through a mud pit, and rolling humongous tires in a figure 8 were the challenges. Wow.

The next relay held in Kimball will be much easier, at least in my opinion. The Relay For Life will begin at Gotte Park on Aug. 21, with a DJ, food and a silent auction and a cake auction. The fun will begin at 5 p.m., and if you would like more information please call 235-2021.

The Kimball / Banner Fair grounds will be the place to be on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 22 and 23. Shootout at Kimball Korral will begin both days at 10 a.m., for more information call 308-241-0573.

The Seniors in Kimball and surrounding area will host their annual Rummage Sale at the Senior Center 107 S. Oak, on Friday, Aug. 28, from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. Saturday the sale will continue from 8 a.m. to 10.a.m. Donations will be accepted and appreciated.

Well folks, that is about it for now. Have a great week and take care until next time. Call me anytime at 436-7152, 641-1335, or write to Barb Cross (Mrs. Rod).
